Stop sewage overflow

During our most recent regional flood season, once again many local reports of raw sewage overflow were posted. We live at the pinnacle of civilization, and we still can’t keep raw sewage out of our rivers and lakes. How pathetic.

I think we can all agree that raw sewage does not belong in the environment, period. Is it possible to persuade the powers in charge to put together and implement a statewide policy change that requires all sewage plants be equipped with the proper tools to contend with our yearly flood stages?

As the most highly educated, health-informed, apex of civilization, is it possible to make the decision to move quickly and fix this abhorrently gross problem?
